Why Did You Doubt?

 

Immediately Jesus extended His hand and caught him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are baby Christians it is natural to doubt Christ because we have little to no experience with Him.

As we mature in our walk with Him our faith (which means trust) in Him is to grow until it is as solid as the rock we stand upon. To do otherwise is a willful act of disobedience unto Him. Now there will be times of testing. When we fail and repent the sin is forgiven.

But, the lesson will be continuously repeated until our faith is solidified so we can take the next growth in our relationship with Him.

This pattern continues all the way to our death bed when we have solid faith that He is taking us to the second Heaven ( no we will not be with Christ when we die. That only occurs after that Judgement Day. To preach that we will be in Heaven with Christ immediately after death is a lie).

To doubt Christ is a insult. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always with me, guiding me, teaching me, protecting me and providing for me with Your immeasurable love.  May I never doubt the One I know for sure loves me more than anyone else ever could. I praise You in the name of He who walks beside me every day Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do Not Doubt My.

                                        

I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you]. John 15:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All of us who have walked the Christian walk have from time to time faced uncertainty whether Jesus loved us or even if He was real. As we mature we grow more and more assured of it.

Many times we go through intense trails and tribulations, sorrows and times of famine. We wonder whether Jesus has deserted us, whether we have angered Him and cry out to Him.

We are met with silence.

Or, so it seems.

When these events have passed and we reflect upon them we can see Jesus’ firm but gentle hand guiding us through them as well as providing provision during them.

It has occurred to me on numerous occasions and only caused my faith in Him to grow stronger and stronger.

“As sure as God puts His children in the furnace he will be in the furnace with them. Charles H Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with a Divine love which none other can compare. Thank you that You will never leave me nor desert me even when many times it seems as if You are absent from me. I praise You in the name of my ever present best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

All Things are Possible

                                       

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With people [as far as it depends on them] it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All thing are possible with Jehovah but not all things are probable.

So we will say you want money to go to school to become a veterinarian but Jehovah wants you to become a waitress. He will not grant you that for which He has not made you for.

However that does not take away the fact that He can and does accomplish the improbable in our lives.

If you had of told my mom when I was ten years old what Jehovah had planned for my life she would have laughed so hard she would have been in tears. It would not only have seemed improbable but down right impossible.

Jehovah works in His way not ours. It is our duty to have faith (trust) in Him that His ways are always what is best for us, even if we do not understand it and to obey His guidance.

“Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose… only [upon] the Beloved who will never pass away.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with what I need, not what I desire in my walk with You. Thank you for providing me with the necessary resources to serve You every day throughout the day so as to give glory and praise unto You and to be a light in the dark world that guides the lost unto You. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Did My Soul Become.

                                                  

 The one who is taught the word [of God] is to share all good things. Galatians 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This is something I believe is needed in our society today. Instead of the me generation we need to be teaching the younger generation the We Generation.

So many folks are chasing after pleasure in the material world only to discover that there is an emptiness inside them. That emptiness is love for others.

I do not know of any who volunteer in the community that suffers depression.

The greatest treasure is the richness of the heart. The only way to enrich yourself in this treasure is to give it away. The more you give away the greater your treasure will be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

As well, when the community is involved in doing volunteer work within the community there will be less vandalism because folks have invested time in the community. So if people volunteer to do clean up in a park they are less likely to vandalize it. When they go and cut the grass or shovel the snow out of a needy neighbours property they will be less likely to vandalize it or do a break and enter there.

The less I spent on myself, the more I gave to others, the fuller of happiness and blessing did my soul become. –Hudson Taylor Prayer:

Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with teaching me how to be loving towards others and then providing me with ample opportunities to exhibit Your divine love within my local community. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was and is the perfect example of love Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. It is in our greatest time of need that we grow the closest to Christ.

The Light Above My Head.

                                         

I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and fulfilled it,” says the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One night while sleeping in the back yard in a tent I was awoken by a blue flame above my head. Thinking the house was on fire I frantically attempted to open the zipper on the tent to get mom out of the house. I was so upset I, at first, did not realize I was vainly attempting to find the zipper on the wrong side of the tent. When I did manage to finally open the tent door and rush outside, there was no flames at all. Confused I crawled back into the tent and promptly fell asleep.

When I woke up the next morning all of my finger tips were tingling, my heart felt as if it was going to burst and my head felt electrified. No, it was not a physical ailment that caused this, I am as strong as a horse.

During morning Bible reading this verse burned into my eyes.

There is concern about what will happen to me when mom passes on to the other side (I am an unpaid caregiver with no savings). Every morning I thank the Lord that even though I do not know what is going to happen, one thing for certain is that He will always take care of me.

In the four years of being a caregiver I have worked tirelessly fixing this place up by myself. The only help the rest of the family is, is when they help themselves to moms money every month. They never come down to help and only call when they want money.

One day after crying out to the Lord about the unfairness of it all, He directed me to go sit out on a trail with my Bible. He spent three hours with verse after verse educating me that the wicked shall lose their inheritance and the righteous shall inherit theirs. I kept on replying that I know my inheritance is in Heaven and that is all I want but it would be nice to have some help from the rest of the family in caring for mom. Finally I have taken the attitude that I get what can be done done and not stress out or work myself into exhaustion attempting to do all the work myself.

This verse seems to be His word pounding into my thick skull that all the work I have done is not for someone else (the wicked family) to profit from (because of the beautification of the property the house has increased in value, which I do not care about but they do because it means they get more money from the inheritance). I shall dwell upon this land in peace, love, joy and security because Jehovah says so and He never lies.

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. Because I know, I KNOW, He holds the future, And life is worth the living just because He lives.” Bill & Gloria Gaither

For I have taken all this to heart, exploring and examining it all, how the righteous (those in right standing with God) and the wise and their deeds are in the hands of God. Ecclesiastes 9: 1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you are serving the Lord and are concerned about anything I pray this article has blessed you with strength, confidence, peace and joy.

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with Your Divine provision through out all of my life. Thank you for promising me a wonderful retirement plan which surpasses anything the world can offer. I exalt Thee in the name of He who will greet me in Your greatest retirement Home every conceived Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

But Be Wise.

If anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

I live in a farming community. When a boy it was understood that if you wanted to eat you had to work.

Today farmers bring in off shore workers because the welfare bums refuse to go out an do an honest days work. They believe they should be pampered and given everything with no effort on their own behalf. This goes down through generations. Yes they are bums.

Bums are described as a person who avoids work and sponges on others; loafer; idler. They avoid work like the plague, they are idle and always getting into trouble, usually with alcohol and drugs and yes they are parasites of society living off of others because we have to pay for their laziness with our taxes.

Instead of the liberals cry babying about how bad these dregs of society are why not force them to go out and earn their keep?

They do not appreciate help when given to them because they believe it is owed to them.

I know of many food banks and soup kitchens that have closed down because these bums demand money from the volunteers and threaten them if they do not give them money, in many instances the police were called. Finally they could not get any volunteers so it had to be closed down. Instead of using their free loading money (welfare) to buy food they go out and get tattoos and drugs and then cry because they have no food and expect us to feed them. I unfortunately see it all to frequently here.

Instead why not have churches support working families in their own church or of neighbors they know who are the working poor?

The flip side of the coin is these big corporations that are constantly cry babying  (scamming) for money to help folks in the third world countries. The CEO’S make millions a year in salary and the feeble trickle of money that does go to the countries goes to corrupt government leaders. The other problem is that these NGO’s put the local businesses out of business.

Why not put money into investments to help the local folks in those countries start their own business?

The other one is for these big corporations asking for money to help cure disease or to help the local hospitals. Again the CEO’s make millions and why do we pay money for taxes if not to be used for health care?

Be generous but be wise in where you give. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with speaking to me and guiding me to use the resources You provide me with to invest them wisely. I thank you in the name of He who is the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

He Will Guide You.

                                      

But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you. John 16:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Holy Spirit is the best guide in every aspect of our lives. He has lead me through four uncharted territories in my decades long walk with Him. Each one was preparing me for the next.

Being a country boy I had no desire to move to the big city yet it was there He took me. While there He guided me to learn about natural medicine and first aid. As well He taught me about the Trinity and planted the seeds for our tree of love to grow and bare fruit. This knowledge held me in good steed while tree planting.

The next uncharted territory He led me to was tree planting. It was there that He taught me how to care for and about others. Most of my co-workers came from divorced families and they were unloved. I was the first one to ever love them and care about them. Again He also taught me about His majesty and grandeur there as well as His power, provision and protection.

This knowledge held me in good steed for the next uncharted territory He was leading me to which was teaching in Asia.

Most children there have never been loved nor respected by their parents. They had no one to confide in with their problems. The skills the Holy Spirit taught me in those tree planting camps was put to ample good use. The children felt loved, cared for, cared about, safe and secure in my class.

As well, the Holy Spirit was preparing me there for the next unknown territory. The majority of Asian I have met were narcissists. Under the Holy Spirits tutorship I learned how to properly deal with them.

This was preparing me for when I had to come home to be a live in care giver for my mom when she became disabled. My family was and is extremely narcissistic. The lessons learned in Asia has and still does hold me in good steed.

During the course of these travels I have learned to have more and more confidence and security in the Holy Spirits guidance.

I do not know where the next unknown territory is or if there is any more but I know the One, oh so very well, who will be guiding me is worthy of my complete and total trust.

“I know not the way God leads me, but well do I know my Guide.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit as my guide throughout all of my life. I praise You in Your awesome name. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
